About Ben Davis & the Jett$
Ben’s “solo” project has always been a collaboration of friends and continues in this tradition with the release of “Storms We’re in For” on Lovitt Records. A little darker, a little heavier, the songs echo the ebb and flow of a complicated life journey we all take.
Ben Davis began his musical career with pioneering punk bands Sleepytime Trio and Milemarker, touring the world relentlessly for 4 years. With the onset of the birth of a son, Davis settled into the Chapel Hill area and began a quiet solo project in his bedroom. Ten years later, this project continues forward as a full fledged band and new full length release set for November 2012. After tours of Japan, Europe, and the USA, Davis and his tight knit band “The Jetts” brought their experience together to the studio to create a focused and concise record with a darker energy than previous albums. The veteran band friends that make up the band recorded at friend Alex’s Seriously Adequate Studio in Carrboro. It was mixed by longtime collaborator Nick Petersen at Track and Field Studio.
